Posted: 6/12/2008
Location: Jacumba, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:about 2 minutes
My partner and I were going on a drive on I-8 out of San Diego east towards the Arizona border. We often go on weekend drives out this way. The sky was completely clear with just a few puffy clouds. We had passed the border patrol checkpoint on the westbound side that is before Jacumba and about 10 minutes from Golden Acorn Casino. On the horizon I saw a silver cigar shaped object that I believed was a plane...my partner did not see it. It was very far in the distance. It went behind a small puffy cloud, came out the other side and then disappeared right as I was looking at it. I informed my partner and he basically said I was seeing things. So I convinced myself it was just a plane.

About 3 or 4 minutes later, I looked up and saw a brownish object in the shape of a cigar or boomerang moving slowly directly over the highway and yet very high in the sky. I started pointing at it telling my partner that it was likely a plane. Mind you it was directly over the highway. He did not see it again. As I was watching it, it just vanished. This one was much, much closer than the previous one but still high in the sky. My partner still does not believe me but I definitely saw it and it vanished right in front of my eyes.

If anyone else has seen this please post!
